Excerpt: The Lumix FX78 is a appealing, sophisticated and truly a marvelous piece of machinery. It is nothing short of Genius. The FX78 is a small and light shirt pocket camera you can carry with you all the time, At The Ready, without being burdensome, and actually you don’t even notice you are carrying it. I have been using it now for about a week, and these are my initial impressions.
Excerpt: This is an excellent product for taking pictures and shooting movies. You can shoot Half HD (720p) directly in MOV file. The image focus and stabilisation work great. Pictures are of great quality thanks to the Leica 1:2.5-5.9f lens. You can shoot decent pictures even with less light, which is useful if you want to take a close up of a baby without the flash. I personally prefer taking pictures at the maximum resolution 12Mpixels in the 4:3 format.
Summary: I bought this because it had good reviews. I have found it easy to use and particularly like the large flat screen which is the size of the whole camera. The zoom is easy to use. I am not a great camera expert - I like to just point and click, so this suits me fine. Some software comes with the camera for picture editing using a PC and this is the default, but I prefer to just download pictures into a folder on my PC.
Summary: High quality throughout,small compact camera, high resolution large screen responsive touch, battery lasts ages, even takes 3d pictures, link up to TV with an HD lead to appreciate your pictures or HD videos worth every penny.
